Session Details: 

Although Gigi Gryce composed a song entitled Strange Feelin' (alt. title Dancing the Gigi), the composition recorded at this session with this title is not the Gryce tune. The composer credit listed on the issues is one Sam Finch about whom little seems to be known. [source: Jazzdiscography.com] --ac.
